My Augusta Cole workshop this week started off with some Last Minute Lucy moves!
I thought I’d completely settled on a lovely bundle of fabrics chosen from my stash.
When I went to cut them, my heart sank because there is no more of this fabric; it’s out of print. I was trying pretty hard to get over that hurdle, until I got totally sidetracked with two other bundles of fabric. Choice B was a gorgeous set of blues and greens, and choice C was a starter pack for a Quilt of Valor.
I was in limbo with this choice until late the day before, when I realized it was time to cut or not go to the workshop. As I got serious about my decision, I realized my background only really matched choice A, the pastels and pinks. I probably could have gotten away with putting off-white into a Quilt of Valor, but I like a darker colored background for those. I think it helps the quilt to stay cleaner. Just my opinion, of course!
I was up late cutting, but it was fun getting ready. At least my dessert “salad” was easy to prepare. I chose a Snicker salad recipe from Taste of Home. Wow, it tasted better than I remember! Maybe we’d just worked up an appetite at the workshop!
And my block looks pretty when finished!
